FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - American Airlines is number one in a category no airline really wants to be known for.

Results from the Third Quarter show American bumped passengers at a higher rate than all the other major carriers.

In that three month segment, which covers the main Summer travel season, American bumped 3,400 passengers.

That is, in fact, more than the rest of the industry combined.

For the most part, when airlines bump passengers, they offer compensation including cash or free upgrades on future trips.
